And on Monday, a decade after that iconic hit with Turkey's Ipek Senoglu on the Bosphorus Bridge, Williams did it again, this time with two more of Turkey's biggest stars - the country's No.1 player, Cagla Buyukakcay, and up-and-comer Ipek Soylu. Check out some of the best pics right here:
For Buyukakcay, Monday's hit on the Bosphorus Bridge was particularly meaningful. "I said to Venus today, when she was here 10 years ago for the first year of the tournament, it was my first WTA tournament ever," the Turkish No.1 said. "It's such a pleasure to have her here again after 10 years."
All three players will play their first round matches at the International-level event on Tuesday.
